my mom got me these
i was rereading the draft of the part of this chapter i’ve written so far before sending them to my advisor and it made absolutely no sense but i am also aware i’m Not Doing Great today and the other day it did make sense so i just decided to trust the me of the other day and i sent them in anyway
remember when em forster said “a happy ending was imperative. i shouldn’t have bothered otherwise. i was determined that in fiction anyway two men should fall in love and remain in it for the ever and ever that fiction allows” like just a hot note for some media creators out there

‘Performing Tibetan Identities’ Exhibition at the Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford.
“…By producing double portraits of each person, in daily wear and ‘traditional’ clothing, Nyema alludes to the fluidity of identity formation and how it may be expressed in dress and objects, revealing the range of options for self-fashioning that are available to contemporary Tibetans”
you really don’t have to write entire thinkpieces on why interpreting the relationship between 2 gay coded characters as platonic is ‘‘‘revolutionary’’’ you know like there are faster and easier ways to say “i’m homophobic and i have no friends”
comunque ovidio è uno zarro

Two Bracelets of Ramesses II
A pair of rigid gold bracelets, each composed of two parts linked by a hinge.
The fine decoration is executed by the granulation technique and consists mostly of geometric motifs. The bezel is composed of a goose, which has two heads turned backwards over the body, carved out of one piece of lapis lazuli.
The fact that the cartouches of Ramesses II and the words for right and left are incised alongside the clasps of the bracelets, suggests that both of these bracelets were the actual ones worn by the king himself.
New Kingdom, 19th Dynasty, reign of Ramesses II, ca. 1279-1213 BC. From Bubastis (Tell-Basta). Now in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. JE 39873

Combine one cup of white wine with the honey. Heat and dissolve, stirring continuously. Pour the mixture into a deep pot. Add the pepper, saffron, bay leaf, and cinnamon.
Steep the dates in white wine, then chop them finely and add them to the pot. Now pour the 3 ½ quarts of wine into the honey and spice mixture. Simmer for an hour over low heat, stirring from time to time.
The Romans would drink it chilled; it’s also good hot.
The first known poet in history, Enheduanna, was an Iraqi woman. She wrote about Inanna on tablets in the cuneiform language. The interesting thing about her is that she had a position or title. It was “The keeper of the flame.” I think that if a poet should have any role at all, it should be (wherever and whenever) the same: “keeper of the flame.”
